Summary: Yoda was social and playful during the handling assessment. He showed no concerning behavior.
When off leash at the Care Center, Yoda greets a novel male and female with a loose and wiggly body. He does engage in gentle play and in between play bouts he would persistently muzzle lick the other dogs. He responds to correction, and explores his surroundings. Yoda was brought in as a stray so his past behavior is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that, Yoda be placed in a home with a tolerant resident dog that matches his gentle play style.
At intake Yoda was friendly, and playful. He kept his body loose and wiggly.
During the initial examination Yoda was active, attention seeking, allows all handling
We have no history on Yoda so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment.
Yoda displayed high energy and movement throughout assessment.
Yoda will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
Yoda was brought in as a stray so his past behavior is unknown.
8/05: When off leash at the Care Center, Yoda greets a novel female with a loose and soft body. He does engage in gentle play but shifts into being nervous after a short time, when she offers him a warning (low growls), after he attempted to muzzle lick her.
8/6: Yoda solicited bouncy play with an intact male today. In between play bouts he would persistently muzzle lick the other dog. He did respond immediately when he was corrected for too much body contact.
